I have tried this already.

The Virtual Directory that is configured in IIS is CompLib so my 
ReplaceRule is as follows:

ReplaceRules replace "C:/Progra~1/Micros~3" "/CompLib"

When a search is executed the replace rule doesn't seem to be working.

So far I had assumed that this was because pf the IndexDir setting and the 
way the index then gets generated.

Am I wrong should this be working?

And thanks a lot for the patience and help!
